As reported by Stone Hearth News in

New Zealand, learning to be less harsh

or judgmental and more compassionate

to themselves may help people with

diabetes manage their disease and stave

off depression, according to a recent

study.

Diabetes can be a stressful disease,

the study team writes in Diabetes Care,

saying, "Relentless demand for healthy

blood glucose control presents daily

opportunities for failure and, thus, attacks

FREESTYLE LIBRE

At the moment in the UK, the FreeStyle

Libre system from Abbott is available to

purchase online by interested diabetics

and is also being used by the NHS

on the self . . . (and) the practice of selfkindness may reduce

psychological

suffering." Reducing the stress of

managing diabetes might even have

biological effects that improve the

condition, they added.

This is the first randomized controlled

trial of a self-compassion intervention

among people with diabetes, lead

author Anna Friis told Reuters Health,

"Self-compassion-based treatments are

founded on the notion that our tendency

to be harshly self-critical or judgmental

when we feel we have 'failed' or done

something wrong makes our stress and

distress worse."

Friss, a psychologist at the University

of Auckland in New Zealand continued,

"This is important because many

diabetes patients suffer from depression

and distress and we know that these

mood problems make trying to achieve

healthy blood glucose control even more

difficult, which is why there is an ongoing

search for ways to help patients manage

their mood, because we know this has

important effects on their physical health."

available on prescription but the company's

plan is to get it listed as soon as possible.

In order to make this happen, Abbott

has invested in and completed two large

clinical trials to demonstrate the same

value to payers that patients and doctors

are experiencing with the FreeStyle Libre

sensor system.

Abbott is actively pursuing

reimbursement and in June the company

submitted to the NHS Business Service

Authority to have FreeStyle Libre Flash

Glucose Monitoring System Sensor

assessed for listing in the NHS England and

Wales Drug Tariff and therefore available on

prescription in the community.

Researchers at Imperial College London

are currently recruiting to the I HART CGM

study, which aims to measure the impact

of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM)

on hypoglycaemia in people with Type 1

diabetes who have a reduced awareness

of hypoglycaemia. I HART stands for

Impact on Hypoglycaemia Awareness of

Real Time CGM.

Participants need to be aged 18 or

over, have had Type 1 diabetes for three

or more years, and be treated with insulin

injections. They also need to have either

experienced a severe hypoglycaemic

event in the last 12 months or have

reduced awareness of hypoglycaemia.

Says Dr Nick Oliver, who is running

the study, "We are recruiting people at

highest risk of hypoglycaemia so are

only recruiting people on MDI who have

impaired hypoglycaemia awareness or

who have had a severe hypoglycaemia

requiring assistance to treat in the last 12

months. We see people for a screening

visit and if they are eligible they are

randomised to Dexcom G5 or Freestyle

Libre. We set them up with the technology

then speak to them on the phone after

two weeks and see them in the research

clinic after four and eight weeks. All

participants are then offered an 8-week

extension using G5."
